Gardening can be good for your mental and physical health, it can help to lower your stress levels, and help you overcome anxiety and loneliness. Our weekly Gardening on Prescription course at Mayfield Nurseries can help you if you are experiencing mild to moderate mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, PTSD or OCD, phobias or agoraphobia.
The course is ten sessions and by the end you will have a good overall knowledge of gardening, feel part of our community and have learnt useful skills
It’s completely free to attend and just needs a referral from your GP (you need to be registered with a GP surgery in Southampton). Ask your GP to complete the referral part of this information leaflet and return it to Mayfield Nurseries:
